DAR ES SALAAM - The UN war crimes tribunal for Rwanda on Friday sentenced former families minister Pauline Nyiramasuhuko to life in prison for her role in the 1994 genocide, the court said.

"Nyiramasuhuko and her son have been sentenced to jail for life in prison. Four other suspects were given different sentences," the ICTR spokesman Danford Mpumilwa told Reuters by telephone from the court.
